In the oven & on my needles!

 

Spring is in the air in NY! After a nice Sunday morning walk, it’s knitting & cooking for the rest of the day. I’m making a few meals, for the week – including roasted chicken and turkey¬†meatloaf.

1 lb of ground Turkey Рyou can make a larger loaf with more Turkey.

Add 1 medium onion, chopped

1 egg

1/2 of a Green/Red/Yellow Pepper (diced)

3 cloves of fresh garlic

1/2 t of both garlic powder & onion powder

1 t of Mustard (whichever you prefer) 1 t of Ketchup

1/2 cup of raw Oatmeal

Salt & Black Pepper

Cover in foil and bake at 350 Рapprox 35 -45 minutes or until done.

You cna make a sauce to cover the meatloaf using ketchup, mustard to cover the entire loaf and bake during the last 1o minutes.

My current WIP:

On my circular needles: the Red White & Blue newborn baby hats (for our hospital charity project). I had a random ball in my stash but this Red Heart Yarn batch is years old and has shorter color striping resulting in a spiral look.

 

Americana

Working with Red Heart Yarn, “Americana” self striping Red White & Blue making newborn baby hats for one of my charity projects. ¬†Lois, a member of my Stitch & Bitch collects baby hats for the newborn babies of White Plains Hospital. ¬†We often make hats with holiday theme colors. She came up with the brilliant idea to make these inclusivity hats as a “welcome to America” for the newborn babies. Red Heart Yarn can be found at any yarn store & places like Walmart for $2.88 a skein (in NY). One skein makes 3 hats.

I will glady accept yarn donations from anyone in the Westchester County in the NY area.

 

Something good…

I had to remind myself to breathe…just breathe¬†¬†as I watched the elections.

I am grateful to be able to practice my hobby of Crochet. I brought out my Christmas colored yarn and stitched like crazy making these.

Something good came out of that night after all: Christmas baby hats – for a local Hospital maternity ward.

WIP on my H hook…

Newborn size vs teeny preemie size…

Crocheting using Caron one pound yarn & Bernat for accent stripes.
